US-AFRICAN LEADERS SUMMIT: Jonathan Leaves For United States On Sunday



President Goodluck Jonathan will, at the invitation of President Barack Obama, leave for Washington DC early Sunday to participate in a three-day United States-African Leaders Summit.

The Summit, which is the first of its kind between an American President and African heads of state and government, is expected to  greatly strengthen ties between the United States, Nigeria and other African countries.

In addition to three special sessions on "Investing in Africa's Future", "Peace and Regional Stability" and "Governing the Next Generation", the summit will also feature side-events such as the United States-Africa Business Forum which has the objectives of boosting efforts to strengthen trade and financial ties between the United States and Africa, creating partnerships that will accelerate job creation, and encouraging even more  American investments in Nigeria and other African countries.

The President will be accompanied to the summit by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ambassador Aminu Wali, the Coordinating Minster of the Economy and Minister of Finance, Mrs. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, the Minister of Trade and Investment, Dr. Olusegun Aganga, the Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo and the National Security Adviser, Col. Sambo Dasuki (rtd.)
